No, just a cool photo I found, I believe it was from either Bettman or Getty archives. But there could be a Boston Terrier in the future...

This thread made me have to have this watch. I was initially nervous about the size, but I think it's just right on my 7'' wrist. Also nervous about the strap, but that is easily replaced. Going with the Hirsch Modena in Honey:
I was also nervous about the gold accents, as I typically hate anything gold. But against the green, and the fact that the rest is either polished or brushed, it is just so unique to me. I think I'll end up loving this watch, as it represents something that is probably the right size for my wrist (I have watches that go up to 42mm), and because it's different and versatile.
Stock strap for now:
Also, I don't know if I'm weird, but I like to wear my strap watches "high and tight" as pictured, and my bracelet watches "loose and low." No idea why, but I can't stand a strap watch creeping down my wrist, and I can't stand a bracelet watch being too tight.

Both my cocktail time and alpinist came today and they are both GREAT in their own different ways. The dials on both are absolutely stunning.
The alpinist feels more solid, while the cocktail time is elegant and comfortable. This is my first experience with 6r15 watches, and I love the ability to handwind. Handwinding is smooth and solid. The strap on the alpinist, while a little plasticky is nowhere as bad as some say. It has decent thickness to it and should break in well...that being said I might switch it to a lighter colored crown and buckle in the future.
Now im really tempted to get the SARB066 "other cocktail time" to round out the 6r15 collection! I would also love to try out the sumo, but unfortunately my 6.25 inch wrists would never comply.
